Inch of oil in the hull...sloppy work, oh and do I need this...
I had a local mechanic install an oil block off plate recently. I saw a little oil in the bottom of the hull when I picked it up that he said dropped down there. Not sure why that wasn't cleaned up. But today I was trying to remove the rear grab handle and there's over an inch of oil in the rear of the ski! It looks like her f'd the styrofoam all up as well. The pieces were back there, but just loose and can easily be removed.
What's the best way to clean this his awful mess, and do I need this styrofoam?

IMO lose the foam block
I use a 1.5 gallon pump sprayer, filled with purple power or your favorite de-greaser... spray inside and all around... lift the front of the trailer as high as you can, and hose it all out
... or pour a gallon of purple power in the hull and drive around the block a few times... then lift the front end of the ski, and hose the inside out

Sounds like a fun weekend project.
Obviously it's made to be wet in there, but is there anything I shouldn't spray water on? How watertight is the electric box?

Who is your mechanic? I'll be sure to stay away from him.

If I have a lot of oil in the hull I like to pour some dawn(like a cup) in the hull and add water - slosh it around by driving it around the block or shaking trailer. Drain all this out and then use purple power for the rest. The dawn breaks it up an mixes well with the oil when you have a lot in the hull and helps carry it out the drain plugs so the pp can do it's job

weepingholes holes thru the bulkhead like that?...making a careless mistake and sloppy work like that is lawsuit or restitution of some kind....unacceptible!!

After I cleaned it all out I found out the majority of it was water. The oil floats on top giving the appearance of solid oil, and when I dipped my hand in it of course that's all I saw. Still seems like a sloppy job.
In his defense, I didn't see all that until I had the rear storage bin out which is bolted in.
Makes me consider putting in a bilge back there. Probably a good idea regardless.
